So I'm not really big into drums or anything, but I do like to smash around on a kit every now and then, so I have my epitome-of-mediocrity kit. I got the kit about a year ago, and after using it for a few months, I completely killed the crash cymbal, so I needed a new one, but one that didn't cost too much because I'm not super serious about drumming, but I still need a crash cymbal. So I looked around musicians friend for a while, trying to find the cheapest crash that I could, and I came across this Paiste 101 Brass Crash. I bought it, set it up when it arrived, and played it. And i have to say, I don't have any complaints. FOR THE PRICE, this thing sounds really nice, and I don't think there's anything better in it's price range. It has a pretty loud sound to it, and a fairly crisp one at that. I would also imagine that this thing could last awhile, because I thrashed it fairly often and it only started breaking after 4 months of me using it horrible cymbal stand set-up that would;ve broken any cymbal. It is definitely not a zildian at all, but if you're on a budget or just not that serious of a drummer (like me), then this is a great cymbal for you.

I bought this cymbal because Paiste is a spectacular brand, but wasn't to thrilled with this one. The sound is pretty good for the price, but I could of gotten a way better cymbal like the Meinl HCS crash. I recomend this for beginers. Don't waste your money when there's better cymbals out there.

Rock the crash

By Daniel. A

from Bronx, NY

This cymbal is very good. When I first got them it was heavy and I was a little skeptical about it but when I rocked it with my drum stick, I am tell you this crash will shock you surprisingly. Really these crash sounds much more expensive than the price I purchased them for. I know now paiste crash has this long decay sound and it's really nice when playing rock or gospel sounds. I would recommend this crash to you. I own the 16" bronze and 14" brass.

This cymbal is pretty heavy duty. YOu do sacrifice volume though. It's gives a good sound and it's got a great price. Bright, not very loud and quick decay.

Not a bad cymbal

By Bigdaddy

from Rogers, AR

See all my reviews

I have been playing drums for about 3 and half years now and kno a few things about drumming. I bought this cymbal and a back up crash and didnt have a lot of money so decided to take the chance to get this. When you first open the cymbal and put it on your set it dosn't sound the greatest. But once you start messing around with it it starts to sound pretty decent. It takes alittle getting use to if you have all the big name cymbals but it holds up very well. I have had it for about 6 months now and has shown no sign of cracking or dents.

I own two 16" paiste 101 crashes and they are great cymbals! They sound like thin crashes, but they are somewhat thick so you don't have to worry about denting or cracking them.

WOW WOW WOW

By Death--FvDX

I can't believe this price is sooo low! It sounds just like cymbals worth about 100-200 dollars more than this! My only complaint in the world about this is that it is a little too quiet. Other than that. It is AMAZING. I got the 16 inch and I love it! I do wish I got the 14 inch by listening to recordings, but it still makes my set sound great.

Ok for price

By Sam Razzell

from Pleasanton, CA

For the price, this is a good cymbal. It sounds ok, but it has a long decay and you have to hit it hard to get a good sound. If you don't have much money, this works.

worth the $$$$$

By Drummer for Christ

from Pine Bluff, AR

See all my reviews

This cymbal has one of the best prices around. It sounds pretty good, probably should be worth more than what it is. It's pretty washy sounding so if your looking for something with a higher pitch this isn't for you. It definitely doesn't beat a Zildian but if you like a washy sound with a medium decay, it doesn't get any cheaper than this.

The best crash I have ever owned (out of 1)

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I ordered the 16 in. and 2 days later it shipped. Put this baby up on a Pulse double braced boom stand and just crash! I love Paiste, and I know they're great because 3 of the best drummers of all time have played them: Larry Mullen Jr. (U2), Stewart Copeland (The Police), and John Bonham (Led Zeppelin.) Sure they played different series, but this is still a great cymbal. I plan on buying the 14 in. too.-Features: Plays awesome, just enough sizzle-Quality: Solidly built, brilliant finish-Value: Great price for a great cymbal-OVERALL: This is the best cymbal I have ever owned.PS: I want to get the hats and the ride as well.

Sweet Cymbal!

Got this today, was rocking out a lot. Sounds great for the money. I play really hard, and have had no problems. Looks real sharp, sounds sharper. It has a long-ish ring afterwards, but if you play hard, you won't hear it. I LOVE THIS CYMBAL!

By Dave-J_oaj

This crash cymbal is awesome. I bought a PAISTE cymbal pack and it came with it and it works nicely, it has a nice warm crash sound to it that I like. Overall, if I were you, I would definatly think about adding it to my set. It is uber sweet and it is at an afordable price.

i got a drum set from a friend and needed to upgrade the cymbals, so i bought this crash and a pair of paiste hi hats. The crash is great for the price, i was a bit nervous about buying cymbals so low in price, but now i know i have nothing to worry about. It sounds great for all kinds of music.

This recently came in and I must say, even for its low price it still has the great Paiste quality. I got the 14 and it has a great sustain. This is a great purchase for its price.

Good For the Price!!

By Slingerlandman254

from Undisclosed

Being a five-year drummer, I think it sounds pretty darn good for the price. Especially the 16''. My only recomendation is you use no smaller than a 5A stick when you use it just because of the sound it makes with a 5A or larger.
